WATER: The History of Fishers Island’s Supply, Use and Distribution Systems

Illustrated Talk with HLFM Director Pierce Rafferty

In this recorded illustrated talk, originally presented August 21, 2022, Pierce examines our island’s water sources and chronicles the evolution of our critical water system infrastructure beginning in the 1890s to today.

This is the first in a series of three that will survey the past, examine the present, and look to the future of utilities on Fishers Island. Electric and communications services will be the subject of two future talks.

*PLEASE NOTE: due to recording problems, this talk was re-recorded by Pierce Rafferty August 22, 2022.
